Camping Breakfast Burrito Recipe

This camping breakfast burrito recipe is absolutely delicious! It’s perfect for feeding a crowd or just a few.

We just got back from a lovely camping trip with a large group of friends.  It is so much fun to plan trips with friends!  We set up a communal style campsite where we all ate together and got to hang out.  And all of our kids… they had so much fun!  It was wonderful.

Each of the families were delegated a meal that they were responsible for cooking during our stay.  I LOVED this!  Only having to cook once?!?!  Awesome!  We made breakfast Saturday morning for 28 people {mostly kids}.  And this Camping Breakfast Burrito Recipe was just the perfect thing!  We also love this campfire dip recipe, this campfire pizza bake and these camp cooker cookies.

How to make camping breakfast burritos:

Camping Breakfast Burrito


  • ground, italian sausage
  • medium onion
  • green pepper
  • minced garlic
  • eggs
  • mozzarella cheese
I do 90% of my camping meal preparation at home and this was no exception.  I began by frying a package of ground, hot italian sausage in a large skillet.  Then I added a medium diced onion, a diced green pepper and 2 tsp of minced garlic.  I cooked the mixture until the onion was opaque and the meat was well done.

Then I scrambled a dozen eggs.  I added about 2 Tbsp of milk to the raw egg, I find that it makes the eggs fluffier.  Salt and pepper was added to taste.

I combined the egg and meat mixture.  Then I added 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and mixed until it was melted into the still warm sausage and eggs.

Finally I spooned about 1/2 cup of the sausage and egg mixture into the center of a large flour tortilla and rolled it up.

 I wrapped each tortilla in Saran Wrap so that they wouldn’t stick to each other.

 Then I placed them into large Ziploc freezer bags and into the freezer.  This recipe made about 12 camping breakfast burritos so I had to double it {and add more eggs} for our party of 28 people.

We packed these in a cooler and brought them out Saturday morning to simply heat up and serve with hash browns.  They are really delicious and a great way to have a filling breakfast without too much mess while camping.

Our camp cooking essentials:

  • A Pie Iron Camp Cooker makes cooking over the open fire super easy.  Check out these 20+ Pie Iron Recipe Ideas for tons of camp cooker inspiration!  Or visit my how to use a pie iron post for tips.
  • Foil Pie Plates make tinfoil packet meals even easier with the sturdy base that they provide. 
  • These Grilling Bags that I recently found are amazing!  Simply add all of your ingredients to the bag at home then throw it on the campfire or grill when camping in the great outdoors.  Avoid the grill bags with plastic windows, they melt.
  • We love these BBQ Cooking Gloves because they make handling campfire food a whole lot safer!

Ok that is definitely coming with us camping!

These look great. How did you heat up the burritos?

We used our Coleman Camping Oven. You could heat them on a skillet or over the fire too. :)

This is perfect for our camping trip this weekend! How far in advance did you make them? Would they be ok in a cooler instead of freezing?

I made them a couple of days in advance then froze them. They should be okay in a cooler for a day or two. :)

This is amazing! Did they not get soggy when defrosting?

Not soggy but a bit of liquid seeped out when heated :)

Yum!! I would love to do this too for our big group camping trip. We have been given “breakfast” duty. I’m nervous about how to cook/reheat them. We will have two camping stoves (no oven). Many thanks for tips!!

Maybe fry them on a griddle on the camp stoves? You could wrap them in tinfoil and heat them on the BBQ or fire too.

This is a fantastic recipe! We went camping this past weekend with 5 couples. I made these ahead of time as directed. To warm, we simply wrapped each burrito in heavy foil and put them on the grate over our campfire. They warmed in about 5-7 minutes and were delicious! There was no oozing of liquids, or soggy tortillas! In fact, because they were loosely wrapped, a few edges were a bit crisp, which added to the flavor. I served them with salsa. Thanks so much for what will definitely become a camping tradition!

Wonderful Sara! Just what I love to hear! xo

I love this idea, and do it for home quite often, but for camping, I like to wrap in tin foil, instead of saran wrap, then you can put them directly on the coals or grill!

Hi! This sounds so good! Definitely going to try this! How big were your tortillas and did you put oil in the pan when heating them up on the skillet?

We are going camping next weekend and this will be on the menu! Thanks for the recipe!

Looking forward to being these! There is a small error in the recipe that readers may not notice if they jump right to it without reading the blog bit. This recipe is for 12 tortillas, not 28.
